Cheryl Cwelich

Land & River Steward

A native of Colorado, Cheryl grew up with a love of the outdoors hiking with her father, fishing in Gunnison with her grandfather and skiing with her friends and family. As a CPW Park Ranger and Monarch Ski Patroller, Cheryl found herself asking questions about water management and ecological resilience. These questions lead Cheryl back to Gunnison and Western Colorado University where she studied for a degree in Environment & Sustainability with an emphasis in Water policy and resilience and a minor in Recreation & Outdoor Education. Cheryl has thrived in the Gunnison and Crested Butte area, giving her a place of unique beauty to explore, a community of like minded individuals and a path to collaborate with others on environmental and recreational challenges.
